Foxes, I am fascinated by them. As animals and as inspiration in art.
In many cultures, the fox appears in folklore as a symbol of cunning and trickery, or as a familiar animal possessed of magic powers.
"Fantastic Mr Fox". I can't tell you how much i love this film, it's magical, fascinating, enchanting.
Quentin Blake's depiction of Fantastic Mr Fox is just as magical as the animation
His loose fluid lines created this marvellous fox !

For a while now i have been drawing foxes, i am loving trying to incorporate animals into my art, and hope to explore different ones.
My latest fox art is of Mr and Mrs Fox.
Foxes love each other for always. They carve there names on big oak trees and eat chocolate covered acorns under the moonlight.
I now have this at Little Nore as a greeting card - i am a total sucker for creating stationary from my art.
I hope it will be popular amongst the fox fans.
